Boat Trips


Join a 1 or 1.5 hour guided boat trip with west Wales’ original eco-tourism boat operator and New Quay’s experts to see bottlenose dolphins, porpoises, seals and birds and this beautiful part of the Welsh coastline.

By booking your dolphin watching boat trip with Dolphin Survey Boat Trips you are supporting a local eco-tourism business and the research of WTSWW’s Living Seas team at the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre as trips carry a volunteer researcher from CBMWC.

Trips run daily, weather permitting, from Easter until the end of October.
